Overseas moving

Overseas moving is not as easy as 1-2-3, because there are many things that need to be done. The removal process involves several steps that must be taken. Generally the steps that need to be taken are: packing your belongings, loading, unloading and transportation and finally unpacking your belongings. A specialized company in overseas moving makes sure your removal will be without any worries.

The process of overseas moving

Transport by ship or plane

A move between continents is characterized by the transport of your goods in steel containers or wooden crates. The goods are loaded by a mover in your country of origin and unloaded by a mover in your country of destination. The mover in your country of origin needs to have reliable partners in your country of destination. Check that both international movers are members of a professional trade organisation like FIDI or OMNI.

Specialists

The international removal specialist must have knowledge about packing and transporting goods and of course the local circumstances to perform these removals adequately. The specialised mover should have great experience in regular transports to and from destinations with their own transport agent on the spot. In addition, due to regular transport and by combining removals, the specialised mover is in a position to offer you low quotations. For details, see Removal companies.

Overseas moving process

A removal within Europa generally consists of packing, loading, transportation and unloading, unpacking.

Packing

Prior to the move small goods are packed in boxes and clothing is stowed in special wardrobe boxes. You can choose to do your own packing and thus save considerably. Valuables or fragile items such as antiques or paintings are often packed by the experienced movers. Disassembling large pieces of furniture can also be done by the mover. Thinking of packing yourself? Check the moving tips.

Loading

The mover will load your goods into the removal van or container on the arranged date. While loading it is essential that the goods are properly stowed in the van, so no damage can occur.

Transportation

The goods are then transported to the storage location of the mover in a van with air suspension. In case of temporary storage the goods will be placed inside the premises. Your mover may combine a number of other removals to keep your costs down. Experienced international movers make a detailed inventory and mark your goods with numbers, thus preventing mix-ups during the unloading of the goods. If you want to know more about the shipping costs, see international shipping costs for detailed information. You can also find more information about shipping your furniture on International shipping furniture.

Unloading

The unloading of your goods is done by an international mover on the destination. An experienced and specialized moving company should therefore have legitimate contacts with foreign movers. The goods will be checked based on the detailed inventory.

Unpacking

During the unloading, the goods are placed in the appropriate rooms. The unpacking is usually done by the owner, who puts everything in its right place. The assemblage of furniture can be taken care of by the movers.

Overseas moving

It might be clear that overseas moving is not as easy as you think. The whole process takes a lot of effort and time. An experienced international mover will help you move to your destination.
